De La Soul just released another track from their upcoming And The Anonymous Nobody called “Royalty Capes.”
“Royalty Capes,” produced by Dave aka Plug Too and mixed by Bob Power, is one of the first songs recorded during early jam sessions for and the Anonymous Nobody. Recording started at The Bomb Shelter and perfected at historic Vox Studios in LA with an unorthodox 9 bar loop of saxophone slowed down and reconstituted for Pos and Dave. It was one of those rare moments where he Dave wrote his part first. Dave said it just sounded like royalty walking in and he put his rhymes down and Pos followed his lead.
And The Anonymous Nobody is in stores August 26th and punctuates a celebratory year where De La Soul marks the milestones of two of their classic albums, Stakes Is High in 1996 (20 years) and De La Soul is Dead in 1991 (25 years).
